I had surgery to repair an inguinal hernia exactly one week ago. I am recevering fine and things are going well. My doctor said no weights for four weeks and then it could be reevaluated. Cardio can be done much sooner.
One question I didn’t ask at the time(and I can’t get through to him now) is how long before certain bodyweight exercises can be done. Push ups and chins most importantly.
If I can do those along with some jogging/running I won’t go 100% mad until I can lift again.
Just doing nothing is boring as hell. Not to mention I’d like to hold on to what little muscle I have.
Anybody have any experience with this? I searched threads but nobody in those did any gradual BW work.
